This is a gem of a book. All 22 tales are from within the British Isles which is commendable.
This little book would make a great stocking filler for a child or even an adult who likes to read of our myths and legends. From Boggarts to Gowks, Fools and Hobgoblins this book couldn't get any better and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
It's a smashing little read and I highly recommend it.

Read this as a child, and still love it!Reviewed in the United States on 12 June 2014
I found this book on a library shelf when I was a kid and was immediately fascinated by the creepy drawings. I found the stories to be slightly spooky and I enjoyed that as a kid, I was always trying to get my hands on some scary stories. However, I introduced it to my 8 year old daughter who was totally disinterested with it... I'll never forget some of those stories... but she just couldn't get into it. To each their own, I guess. I also have a fascination with old world and historical type stuff, and this lends itself to that a bit because it's not very modern either in prose or visually, so that probably explains a bit about why I like it. She's more interested in modern and commercial type stuff, and this is definitely not commercial or mainstream in any way.
